Hey ineespenes, I just also bought Flora & Fauna! And bought it blind (going against my own advice, but I do like Rogues and it seemed just up my street).

I've just been wearing it for a few hours, but I can say I really like it - even though I haven't quite "figured it out" yet. Yes, there are some fleeting reminiscences of Vol de Nuit extrait, of Mitsouko... though it doesn't smell exactly like either. It's quieter on me than my other Rogues (Chypre-Siam, Vetifleur, Tuberose & Moss) but absolutely wonderful. Glad I went for it as I think it's nearly gone... I think I'll really enjoy wearing this in late autumn and wintertime, it's that kind of warming, enveloping fragrance.

I agree on your thoughts :) It felt like a mixure of Mitsouko and Vol de nuit at first. The drydown felt really familiar, but I couldn't really figure out what.... Then it hit me, Nahema :) I love all these scents, so I'm happy about it :)

That is spot on to my reaction of Flora and Fauna. Never found any correlation to Nahema.
